Here is a great way to get loads of protein without overdosing on animal products.
I box of Ancient Harvest Lentil & Quinoa Supergrain Pasta (about $3 at Sprouts)
I lb bag of Earthbound Farm Organic Deep Green Blends Power ($5 at Vons), use 6 cups of greens
Cook pasta, make sure to check after 7 minutes because this pasta has a tendency to become “smooshy”. Drain pasta. In large pot, mix pasta and greens with olive oil for about 1-2 minutes until greens are soft. Now you have a high protein, complex carbohydrate, rich in iron, Vitamin A and Vitamin C base to add anything you want to it. It doesn’t get any easier than this! I mixed mine with sun dried tomatoes, sweet onions, minced garlic, dried basil and dried oregano. I LOVE Italian food!
This literally cost $8 to buy and took me ten minutes to make and it created SEVEN simple Power Protein Bases. You can add anything you want to it to change up the dish. Make it tonight and for the rest of the week, I will post what you can make with this Power Protein Base thats simple and easy.
